My good lady and I are off to the continent, Spain mainly, where I understand that we are required to have a first aid kit in the motorhome. We always carry a small range of plasters and various creams, etc. but what officially constitutes a "First Aid Kit" and is the definition, if there is one, different in each country.

Any views?

Regards

I have just been told that if the kit complies with DIN 13164 it should do. But are there other standards also?

Confused as usual!

i carry one of these around, if nothing else i looks like youve tried and more impressive than a few plasters in a plastic bag, mid you the plasters is the only bit ive ever used.

I believe you need to have surgeon type gloves in the kit on the off chance that You need treatment from a passer by.

As we all know, campervan types can be a bit infectious.:angel:0
